"I have read a recent article or two (sorry, forget where) about the enormous strains being put on the Swedish educational system in some areas due to the large influx of non-Swedish speaking immigrants. It would be interesting to follow the progress of those areas to see how much the quality of education for the typical Swedish student suffers and/or how much additional tax money must be spent to handle the problem."

IMO, you hit the nail on the head. The homogeneous nature of the societies chosen makes the statement tilt toward the silly.
The US must inovate, and must serve multiple solutions, not a single solution. This is the problem we have been facing, and still more calls for a single big system.

I see vouchers as the best way to address what is uniquelly American. The many culture offering many educational solution selected by parent/community with a core set of competencies.

Once upoon a time a shared 'American Dream', and a desire to be part of the melting pot that America claimed to be held our schools in place where homoheous education held hope. That time is past, how do we give multiple solutions, that are fluid as is the population in various areas of America on both cultural and socio-economic basis? - Voucher based system which solutions for education problems chasing dollars and adapting accordingly.
